The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
Great work, this will be a neat bridge between car/pickup and fire apparatus modelers. If I was at the Palmyra Fire Department back in the day, I'd have been tempted to put a '72 grille in it as a nod to a popular TV series.
Can you mount your windshield to a base like the one on the left?
That base is made of sculpy, which works fine for a couple of vacuform pulls. The resin copy on the right was necessary for series production. If you can piece your glass back together, sand/smooth it to at least a 600 grit finish, and send it to me, I can vacuform it.
Great build, and the roofline looks almost perfect. To make it perfect the rest of the way, the upper windshield trim needs to be slightly raised and revised, especially the corners, to Falcon/Comet shape.
We go through two stages in our lives - an acquisition stage, and a dispersal stage. Both are important, but for different reasons. The older you get, less is more - that's for sure. I've got my junk pared down to just one bedroom closet, with more to be sold off to come. Getting rid of stuff takes a lot more effort than getting it does, but others I know have the same problem, just on a far grander scale. One guy made millions with a dental lab, spent a few million on everything he ever wanted, like a helicopter, motorcycles, lathes, a tractor, 4x4 pickup, quads, big time machine and sheet metal tools, tons of high end furniture, and on and on. The best of everything too, with all the trimmings. He used some of it a few times, much of it not at all, and now the pile sits in a BIG aircraft hanger as he wonders how to get rid of it all. And all I've got is a few models, some car parts, and a few other things to worry about. Puts it all into perspective.
